A screwball comedy as big as Texas, 6 November 2003
Author: ranthonysteele from Austin, Texas

"Didn't I kill you once already, boy?" still cracks me up. If you're looking for reality, look somewhere else. If you are looking for some laughs while watching a group of impossible characters attempt what should be a simple task that turns out not to be simple at all; a quest that leads to getting shot, mutilated or run over by a truck (sounds horrible, don't it? It's a hoot) This is the movie for you.
